“Not a 9 to 5 job, but one that I find totally satisfying”
While others are still fast asleep, Ingo Büsching is already in the warehouse checking out the situation. The working day for the dispatch manager at the PW09 corrugated board plant in Plößberg starts at 6am.
He is responsible for ensuring that the right quantity of goods leaves the plant at the right time and is sent to the right customer. In his case, the goods are board – corrugated board to be more precise. “This might not sound very spectacular at first,” says Büsching. “But when you appreciate all the ways in which board is used, you suddenly realise that it’s incredibly interesting.” The product is lightweight, sustainable and indispensable for the packaging we use every single day. “I at least now look at the cardboard box in which my online orders arrive with a very different perspective since I've been working at Progroup,” says the 36-year-old. “I’m fascinated by the material – and even more by the idea that our products are used throughout Europe to ensure that items get safely from A to B.” In Plößberg, each year around 200 million m2 of corrugated board sheets are manufactured entirely from recovered paper – and our innovative high-tech machines do this extremely efficiently.
